Now for my easy dessert recipe! My mom always made these when I was a kid and I still love making them today. If you make your own pie dough, it’s a good way to use up the scraps!

Sugar ‘n Cinnamon Stickies

Pie dough (rolled out into a rectangle)

2-3 tbsp sugar (add more or less depending on the amount of dough)

1 tbsp cinnamon

1-2 tbsp butter

Roll out the pie dough into a rectangle. Blend the sugar and cinnamon together and spread over the dough. Roll the dough into a log, then slice the log into 1/4″ pieces. Melt the butter in a skillet and place slices face down. Cook until browned evenly on both sides. Best eaten right away!

That’s it for me! Use the list below to keep moving through the hop! Have fun!
